Johannesburg: Kings XI Punjab pacer Shantakumaran Sreesanth denied reports of sledging Matthew Hayden and said that he considers former Australian opener as a cricket genius.
In the IPL match against Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab at Pretoria, Hayden hit the Kerala pacer for two sixes before falling to him in the same over.
In the post match press conference, Hayden alleged Sreesanth had sledged him and said the Kerala pacer was an "overrated bowler".
Sreesanth denied sledging the Australian and was clueless what prompted Hayden to say so.
